Windows 10 Right-click Context Menu
The installer for Notepad++ 6.7 inserts an ‘Open with Notepad++’ into the Windows Explorer right-click context menu. One or many files can be highlighted and then clicking on the Open will have Notepad++ open then all. I have had upwards of 50 files opened at once this way. Why is not relevant. Notepad++ does it and i like it.
However the installer for Notepad++ 6.8.8 does not insert this entry. You can only open 1 file at a time from a file listing (Windows Explorer or other), or open a directory to open a listing and open them all once NP is started.
I don’t know what version i had before updating to 6.8.8 so i don’t know when the menu item stopped being inserted. I have just now uninstalled 6.8.8 and on a chance gone to 6.7 which does insert the item.
Would development please check into this change and please re-enable it.
just did a quick test and installed 6.8.8 on windows 10 x64 and the Edit with Notepad++ is there.
Are you sure that, during install, you didn’t uncheck the box which asked for context menu entry?
Claudia, you are correct. On the last install (6.8.8) instead of hovering over that checkbox to display its info, i now remember clicking on the item. Totally my error.
I have just done a couple of test installs with/without that checked, and yes the feature that i want does/does not appear.
Thanks for testing and responding.
… cheers, Laurin
